Event's featured speakers: Helga Davis and Shara Nova
Ocean Body is a multi-screen film and music installation directed and designed by Mark DeChiazza and collaboratively created with composer-vocalists, Helga Davis and Shara Nova, who embody a sculpture built for two by Annica Cuppetelli, artist and Lecturer II at the Stamps School of Art & Design.
Ocean Body examines the decade-long close friendship between Davis and Nova and seeks a necessary bridge for the division that exists not only in our society, but in ourselves.
